Abstract
In the present research the Early Segregated Education and Vulnerability to Emotional Problems In Adulthood was investigated. The main objective was to highlight the emotional problems prevalent in the Pakistani youth with an Early Segregated Education. For this purpose a study was carried out on the individuals with an Early Segregated and an Early Non Segregated Education.
In order to find out the Vulnerability to Emotional Problems the IPAT Anxiety scale and IPAT Depression scale were administered on a sample of 400 individuals within the age range of 20 to 35 years.
The 400 participants were further divided into four categories comprising of 100 females with an Early Segregated educational background, 100 males with an Early Segregated educational background, 100 females with an Early Non Segregated educational background and 100 males with an Early Non Segregated educational background.
Chi square test was computed in order to obtain the statistical significance of the data. All the hypotheses were found to be statistically significant at P<.001 level. The findings of the present research data provide the evidence that the individuals who received an early Segregated education have high anxiety and depression sten scores than the individuals who received an early Non Segregated education.
Overall, the depression sten scores were found to be higher than the anxiety sten scores. The results of the present research also show that the females who received an early Segregated education have high depression sten scores than the anxiety sten scores of the males who received an early Segregated education. In the light of the above given results it can be concluded that in order to improve the mental health of the Pakistani youth with an Early Segregated Education some specific preventive measures should be taken into account by the concerned authorities.
